B.E.A.R. Binders

(Bring Everything Always Ready)

The B.E.A.R. (Bring Everything Always Ready) binder is a way to organize all the things we need on a day to day basis. Each child was asked to bring in a white 3-ring binder. This binder will house all of our materials needed for a successful year in third grade. Each binder will contain 5 tab dividers to organizer materials.

It is important that the B.E.A.R. Binder be treated with respect. These binders are not to be doodled on and every effort should be taken to keep them clean and in tip-top shape. This is an important communication piece and students will be using these binders all year. Let's take pride in our B.E.A.R. Binder.

The B.E.A.R. binder is to travel to and from school daily. It is the child's responsibility to share the B.E.A.R. Binder with his/her parents each night.

  • Keep the B.E.A.R. Binder safe and clean at all times (do not draw or doodle on the binder).
